Question about 2008 Gas Gas EC 200 Hobby

Smoked Clutch I bought an '01 EC200 a few months ago that needed a little TLC. It runs great and seems to be very strong. I've had it out a few times just chasing the kids around and such. The last time out I was running it pretty hard (for me) and I pretty much lost all action in the clutch. Meaning

The only clutch action I was getting was /is in the last 25% of the lever throw. I brought it home and let it cool and tried bleeding the clutch. Didn't seem to help. I have no idea what tranny oil is in it. Figured I'd just tear it apart and check things out with the plates and such. Anyone got any tips or links on what I should be looking for? If you haven't figured it out yet...I'm very new at this but I enjoy doin my own wrenching so any help will be very much appreciated.Look closely at the master cylinder and lever. When you pull the lever does it almost instantly start pushing the mc piston? Is there too much clearance between the lever and mc piston? Is the adjuster screw missing from the lever? There is also a push-pin between the adjuster screw and mc piston the dust-boot holds it in place. Is it installed? If the adjuster comes loose that pin can fall out.,,

Check compression on each cylinder. This will eliminate a head gasket problem. Also see if you can get a noid light and make sure all of your injectors are firing properly.

Sounds to me like you have a bad front hub. The good news is that the wheel speed sensors are part of the wheel hubs. The tricky part can be to figure out which side is bad. If the noise is worse when turning right, it is most likely the left side that is bad. You could try jacking up each corner and shaking the wheels to see if there is any play.

I have a 1994 F-250 xl, 5speed Manuel and its a gas job! I've only had it a few month and I've already had to change the release bearing 4 time(about once a month) why would the release bearing...


Release bearing are only supposed to work when you have your foot on the clutch pedal. If it keeps burning out then it is overworking. Some faults can be clutch pressure plate springs too strong. , Worn fingers on the pressure plate. No freeplay between clutch slave cyl and throwput arm. Faulty M/cyl or it can be as simple as driving with you foot resting on the clutch pedal instead of the foot rest

You should check the coil mattress cover. Feel around to make sure nothing is puncturing the bladder. It is not normal for them to fail like that. When you deflate it, you must make sure all of the air is out of the bladder before folding the unit back into the sofa. If you don't, you make end up with a problem at the seams.

Can i change the brushes on my cordless grinder?


Hello u2okay, it is a little challenging but, Yes you can. I have done it myself some time ago. I no longer have the information available, but, I went to the manufacturers website and got a list of their authorized parts dealers. That was 8 or 9 months ago and she's still running strong. Well worth the effort. GREAT TOOL!
Good luck my friend!
